What Is Planning? Communities that do not plan are often forced to deal with problems reactively. Perhaps more importantly, though, they are less likely to seize opportunities for transformative and positive change.
This is not to say that community planning is akin to having a crystal ball; there will always be unexpected challenges and unanticipated outcomes.
Rather, the key point is that plans based on the best available information and the most inclusive processes will confer economic, environmental, and social benefits that far outweigh the investment of resources in the planning process.
